Chillingham wild cattle: Surviving another winter

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-20796250


Chillingham wild cattle breed throughout the year

Richard Marsh is prepared for winter snows and his charges, a herd of 100 rare Chillingham wild cattle, are ready too.

They have been weathering winters in the 360 acre Chillingham Castle park in Northumberland since first being enclosed in about 1240.

"These wild cattle are unique and rarer than the Siberian tiger," Mr Marsh said.

"No human hand touches them and they receive no veterinary care either."
